Located approximately 2 miles West of Bromide. Left Fork in road to next cattle gate on left-double gates. Sets approximately 150 yards NE of gate in pasture. Over grown, some stones knocked over. Very old graves. Fence torn down around it.

Other Problems

General weathering destroying cemetery. No road access-need that availability for maintenance and restoration. Creek close by with old wagon road between it and cemetery.
